p.206

hush up sweetie
no one wants to hear it
put some mascara on
let go of my hand
i might need it

simplicity is simply boring
that shallow shell, it won’t protect
i’ll leave the car on
go get your money
be careful not to break your neck

walking hard on your wing tips
strings of twine and feather hair
don’t go too fast
i’ll get jealous
i’m not one to share

you draw a picture of me
but the lines are all crooked

i think, “wow, that’s great!”
how unappealing
but how appropriate

i’m sure you’ll get tired of me
with your candle burning
and my unfulfilling flicker
shut me off
i don’t care
i can’t say it any quicker
